Overview of Parties

As mentioned, all provincial governments and the Yukon are based on a political party system. Most provinces and the Yukon have three main parties represented in their assembly while Alberta and Saskatchewan have four and British Columbia has five. For detailed information on these parties and more, see the 'List of Political Parties in Canada' provided by the free encyclopedia Wikipedia referred to in More on this Issue under 'Political Parties'.


The following table provides you with the number of ridings in each province and territory, the name of the governing party and the percentage of women elected representatives.
